Leah Remini Sues The Church Of Scientology

Leah Remini Says Leaving Scientology Made Her Daughter ‘strong Minded’

Leah Remini is taking the Church of Scientology to court. The King of Queens actress filed a lawsuit on Tuesday (August 1st) accusing the church and its leader, David Miscavige, of harassment, defamation, and surveillance.

Remini is a former member of the Church of Scientology, joining as a child in 1979 and leaving in 2013. She has publicly spoken out about the church since.

“For 17 years, Scientology and David Miscavige have subjected me to what I believe to be psychological torture, defamation, surveillance, harassment and intimidation, significantly impacting my life and career,” the Saved By the Bell actress said in a statement released on Wednesday (August 2nd). “I believe I am not the first person targeted by Scientology and its operations, but I intend to be the last.”
